Family Mediation

What is Mediation?
It aims to sort out family disputes without going through Court. Mediation can help if your relationship has broken down and you need to sort out practical issues such as:

  • Arrangements for children – where they are going to live and when you will see them.
  • Child maintenance payments.
  • Sharing finances (eg. House, savings, pension).
  • Dealing with any debts.
  • Grandparents or other family members wanting to see children.

Mediation can also help at the beginning of relationships for example:-

  • Couples wanting to discuss the content of a Pre-Nuptial or Living Together Agreement
  • Couples who are buying a house together who need help in deciding how the property should be held.

What are the benefits?
Family Mediation is less stressful, gives you the ability to sort out your future, is quicker, cheaper and provides a better way to sort out disagreements. It then allows you to move on with the rest of your life as quickly as possible.

How does it work?
The first step is to attend a meeting with the Mediator so the full Mediation process can be explained, and to be sure that it is right for you. This is generally called a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting or MIAM. You generally go to this meeting on your own. If you and your partner are both willing and the circumstances are suitable, a joint meeting will then be arranged. Further joint meetings are arranged as necessary. If agreed proposals are reached, the Mediator will draw up documents and submit that information to both you and your partner.
